    wowa, they r soooo cool, did anyone see the one in golf + last isue? it was rude as f**k. I quite fancied getting one when i got my golf but could find one but have now decided i wana start looking for one anyway, the problem is alot of them are really dented and rusty and obviously i would like a fairly tidy one to do up!!

    Are you a builder Sarah?

    There was one in the Autotrader website based about 20 miles from Bracknell but it was a couple of weeks ago. It was up for about £750 I think. Didn't look too bad either!

    Was kinda tempted by getting a diesel for my long journey round the m25 everyday but I might look like some sort of donut pulling up to work in it untill it's moddified!

    LMUKT... i had no idea they made caddy pic ups anymore... what r they like?


    Skunklook... not i am certainly not a builder, however i often have dogs, bales of hay and straw and bags of feed in the back of my nice clean car but never pasengers.... surely it'd make sense to get somting that looks ace but is totally usefull???

    jonboy .... if u aint using your caddy then y not sell it to me

    Very true, I'd have no use for it but would love one just for the cool factor once it's modified!

    Bails of hay??? Are you a farmer then? (only joking Sarah)

    plus import duty and shipping and you are looking at the thick end of 11k for a top spec one or if you look about in the north you could get a good used one rot free ( califorian climate)or check outhttp://www.vw.co.za/models/caddy/
